Mike Pompeo
U.S. Representative R-Kansas
CSPAN 07/24/2013
Pompeo: The amendment I offer this evening clarifies and confirms the scope of two programs that Mr.. Snowden illegally exposed while sitting in a hotel room in communist china. First the amendment clarifies that under section 702 No US citizen or person in the US can be targeted. Period. No US person under section 702 may be targeted

CSPAN 07/24/2013
Pompeo: in any way by the United states government. While there are other specific authorities, the US person may be subject to an investigation. They may not , the US government may not do so under section 702 .and that is what this amendment intends to clarify. The second part of the amendment clarifies section 215. Also known as section 501 of FISA. The amendment clarifies that no content of communication can be stored or collected by the national security agency. That is no e-mail, no video clips, no Skype. No record of the actual conversation

Pompeo: the contents there of may recorded or collected by the national security agency. I can’t repeat that enough. That’s the intent of this amendment. I want to make clear to everyone that contrary to the suggestions of some, the NSA has not been acting outside of the scope of its authorities. The metadata program is carefully designed with program layers of oversight by all three branches of government. This is precisely the way our government ought to operate. With input from article one article two and article three of the United States constitution. It is our duty to make sure

Pompeo: that the NSA stays with in the legal bounds here in Congress and this amendment makes those boundaries perfectly clear for everyone to know and understand. We shouldn’t mislead the American people into thinking that the NSA has been acting illegally. There is perhaps no program in the United States government that is as carefully monitored and overseen as the program that this amendment attempts to clarify. (To the extent that some in this chamber wish to review or provide more protection)
Dutch Ruppersberger
U.S. Representative D-Maryland, Ranking Member on the Intelligence Committee
CSPAN 07/24/2013
Ruppersberger: I rise in support of the Pompeo Amendment. This amendment strongly reaffirms that in America privacy and security must co-exist together. This amendment states that in no uncertain terms that the government cannot use section 702 of the FISA to intentionally target an American for surveillance. This important amendment also reaffirms that the

CSPAN 07/24/2013
Ruppersberger: phone conversations cannot be collected through section 215 of the Patriot Act. It makes the intensions of Congress very clear. I believe the Pompeio amendment makes a powerful statement that NSA cannot target Americans for the collection or listen to their phone calls. And I urge my colleagues to vote yes. However, I do understand the concerns of the American people and of Congress when it comes to these programs. On the House Intelligence Committee, we are reviewing and evaluating potential ways to change the FISA act that will provide the intelligence community with the tools it needs to keep
Justin Amash
U.S. Representative D-Michigan
CSPAN 07/24/2013
Amash: We are here today for a simple reason. To defend the fourth amendment. To defend the privacy of each and every American. As the Director of National Intelligence has made clear, the government collects the phone records, without suspicion of every single American in the united states. My amendment makes a simple but important change. It
Justin Amash
U.S. Representative D-Michigan
CSPAN 07/24/2013
Amash continued 1: limits the government’s collection of those records, of the records, to those records that pertain to a person who is the subject of an investigation, pursuant to section 215. Opponents of this amendment will use the same tactic that every government throughout history has used to justify its violation of rights. Fear. They will tell you that the government
Justin Amash
U.S. Representative D-Michigan
CSPAN 07/24/2013
Amash continued 2:Amash: must violate the rights of the American people. To protect us from those people who hate our freedoms. They'll tell you that there is no expectation of privacy in documents that are stored with a third-party. Tell that to the American people. Tell that to our constituents back home. We're here to answer one question for the people we represent. Do we oppose the suspicionless collection of every American's phone records?
